Ava is a venture-backed food technology startup based in San Francisco. We create wines without grapes or fermentation by analyzing their molecular profiles to recreate and perfect them. We started Ava with the goal of making the great vintages accessible to all. Ava's mission is to recreate the experience of wine without having to recreate the process of traditional winemaking.
We believe foods will be designed the way clothing is designed and printed with the ease that we print on paper today. The future of creating foods with total control can't be realized if we don't understand the "inks"; that will be used to print these foods.
Ava's pursuit of the molecular reconstruction of food will help push the envelope of the food tech revolution.
